I'm really enjoying this pallets. the consistency is absolutely delightful and these lip colors aren't drying at all. As advertised, it does come in a cream, matte, and highlighted color, and they are all similar in colors but vary shade wise. To be honest I've recommended this to all my friends. the only issue I have with it is the fact that the highlight color is a bit too icy for my personal liking otherwise, everything else is great. for beginners this would would be wonderful because they have suggestions at the back hinting at different designs that can be tried!
